New container terminal in Copenhagen

New container terminal in Copenhagen

Copenhagen Malm÷ Port, CMP, will move its container operations in Copenhagen to the Outer North Harbour. The decision is due to urban development in the inner parts of Nordhavn making it relevant. The move will result in filling out new areas, construction of new buildings and the purchase of new equipment

"Copenhagen is the ideal combination of the basic requirements. We see the establishment of container operations here as the best solution in terms of both economic and nautical aspects", says Johan R÷stin, CEO of Copenhagen Malm÷ Port AB.

The physical conditions such as water depth and a light approach are really good in the Outer North Harbour. This means that the CMP will be able to receive even larger ships in the future. It is important for customers to have as much flexibility as possible when they design their services and optimize their shipping fleets.

The port is placed as close as possible to the end users of the goods, so that the sea is used as a transport route for as great an extent as possible. The new terminal will be more automated. This will make it possible to handle more containers per hour and make better use of the land.

"The service level is crucial for the attractiveness of a terminal. It provides us the space to create a modern and efficient terminal with the best technological solutions. CMP will be able to deliver a better service, and in general it will ensure that the CMP is the optimal partner for both trucking companies and shipping companies," Johan R÷stin concludes.

The new terminal is expected to be operational in 2020.
